The Story of St. Valentine

Did you know that Valentine's Day is more than chocolates, cards, and candy hearts? I read The Story of St. Valentine to my kids today and we learned why we celebrate St. Valentine's life on February 14th (the actual date Valentine was persecuted in the year 269). It's a day we can remember St. Valentine and how he told told the emperor and others about Jesus, how he married couples with secret ceremonies in the woods, and how he loved no other god but God alone while refusing to worship Roman gods. Learning about his courageous life makes celebrating Valentine's Day much more meaningful this year.

Happy Valentine's Day!
